About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The female poets of America..

Description:

First edition: selections from 94 American women poets, with brief biographies and critical notices. Contributors include Anne Bradstreet, Mercy Warren, Phillis Wheatley, Susannah Rowson, Sarah Josepha Hale, Lydia Huntley Sigourney, Lucy Larcom, both Careys, and others, many famed in their days and now poignantly forgotten. Griswold was the editor of The Poets and Poetry of America, The Prose Authors of America, and The Poets and Poetry of England; Edgar Allan Poe, in his review of the present work, commended Griswold's taste and courage in promoting "numerous lady-poets . . . many of whom he now first introduces to the public," including several Southern women. => The volume is illustrated with five steel-engraved plates and an additional engraved title-page. Provenance: From the German Society of Philadelphia (properly released) with call number label on spine, bookplate and 19th-century handwritten shelfmark on front pastedown, embossed stamp to both title-pages. Binding: Very dark brown publisher's cloth, spine with gilt lettering, rules, and blind floral stamps; front cover with triple-ruled blind frame and blind foliate "drawer handles" above and below a gilt central design of a harp surrounded by a floral wreath, this repeated on rear cover in blind. 8vo (24.7 cm, 9.75"). Frontis., add. engr. t.-p., 400 pp.; 4 plts. BAL 6681; Sabin 28893; Library Company, Afro-Americana, 4386 (for a much later edition); Allibone p. 745; Poe, "The Female Poets of America," Southern Literary Messenger, Feb. 1849. Bound as above, binding rubbed and chipped; text gently cocked. Marked as above, with light age-toning and a few leaves with spotting; one corner lacking, another with short marginal tear (not touching text). => A "who's who" of 19th-century American women poets.
